Article from the July 27, 1922, "Ames Daily Tribune," telling about how people touring the United States in vehicles would camp at the new "tourist camps." Ames had such a camp near the Chautauqua grounds on the then northeast corner of town (the north part of what was to become the Municipal Cemetery). Water and toilet facilities were provided in the park and during the summer from ten to twenty camp sites were occupied on most nights. (See also: 209.1186.1-2)
